Noi donne poverine

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Noi donne poverine,  
tapine sfortunata,
appena siamo nate
ch'abbiamo da penar.
Disgrazie da bambine,
strapazzi grandicelle,
e dell'età nel fiore,
o siamo brutte o belle
il maledetto amore
ci viene a tormentar.
Meglio saria per noi
non nascere, o morir.
